The Old Wellingtonian Lodge No.3404

The Old Wellingtonian Lodge No.3404 is a Masonic Lodge for Old Wellingtonians, Governors, Masters and Officers of Wellington College, present and past, whether already a Freemason or those interested in becoming one. It is part of the Public School Lodges’ Council; a forum for the private lodges of many of our great public schools.

We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in finding out more about Freemasonry. Also, those who are already Freemasons are warmly welcomed to join us; especially those from PSLC Lodges or Old Wellingtonians from other Lodges – just ask!

Members of the Lodge meet in London three times each year: in February, October and November. For our May meeting we return to Wellington College to celebrate our Freemasonry and gives us the opportunity to support College charities and initiatives.
